VELUX—Building global efficiencies and local service excellence with Office 365

Today’s post was written by Peter Bang, chief financial officer for the VELUX Group.
Picture of Peter Bang, CFO, the VELUX GroupAs CFO at the VELUX Group, I’m responsible for the financial health of the company. I’m motivated to ensure that we are running a cost-effective global operation so we can continue to design, build, and deliver the best skylights and roof windows, at the best prices. Right now, we are in the midst of a journey toward a more united and global company—One VELUX—with a goal to reduce costs by consolidating administrative business functions and uniting siloed teams in our company. We had local finance, HR, and IT departments in offices all over the world. While we want to preserve the local sales teams that ensure specialized customer service in the approximately 40 countries where we have a presence, we had to reduce the administrative inefficiencies that this decentralized structure entailed.
